Massages work a person on a psycho-sensitive and harmony level. Through slow, flowing and deep movements, an important job can be done at a muscular and energetic level.
A massage session can turn out to be pretty intensive, for instance when working with athletes, dancers or persons with severe tensions and contractions. Or it can be more subtle, for instance when working with persons in need of rather emotional support. The therapist has to know how to adapt his work to the specific needs of each patient.
